Re: producing an adult movie
How does this stuff work?
In and out, repeat.
I don't have any idea how much it would cost to make a movie
It can vary a lot. You can get a scene done for a few grand.
and I don't know how this works legally either.
Consult a lawyer. Ashcroft is pretty hard on porn peddlers. You'll need to check districting laws etc as the location choice must comply with laws.
Of course you need lots of documentation from the participants. If you get fake ID from a model you can go to jail.
Does anyone have any idea how to negotiate terms?
With who? The actors and acresses? There are modeling agencies with fixed prices for these things.
How much return on my investment should I expect to make?
None. I do not think you
will make any real profit so you'd better be in this just for the idea of making a porno.
If you want to treat this as an investment line up your distribution first.
